Jona as I knew him
In 1979, I was a struggling painter in Brooklyn, and I spent a lot of time with Dick Lethem and his family. This is a portrait of Jonathan at the age of 15 or so. He seemed an adult to me at the time, but judging by his writings, he was in the throes of a painful adolescence. You can visit his glove compartment.
